Camelina as Feed -

Effects of camelina meal supplementation on ruminal forage degradability, performance, and physiological responses of beef cattle – B. I. Cappellozza, R. F. Cooke, D. W. Bohnert, G. Cherian and J. A. Carroll – Journal of Animal Science 2012

Summary: Three experiments compared ruminal, physiological, and performance responses of beef steers consuming hay ad libitum and receiving grain-based supplements without (control) or with (CAM) the inclusion of camelina meal. In summary, CAM supplementation to steers impaired forage and total DMI, did not alter thyroid gland function, increased circulating concentrations of PUFA, and lessened the acute-phase protein reaction elicited by neuroendocrine stress responses. Link: http://www.journalofanimalscience.org/content/90/11/4042
